What is the Wisconsin Cottage Law? I'm glad you asked!
As of October 2, 2017 Wisconsin home bakers are now free to legally sell their not-potentially hazardous baked goods directly to customers! The following outlines what you need to do to sell baked goods in compliance with the court decision along with best practices.
Please note that, because of the Judge’s ruling, we do not need a law to legally bake. We can start baking right now. Our Wisconsin Legislative branch has the right to pass a reasonable law (check back for updates on that front), but in the meantime, again through the Judicial branch, we are free to bake.

I attended Kendall College in Chicago, Illinois for a degree in baking and pastry arts back in 2005. I have my ServSafe certification, which is a food and beverage safety training and certificate program administered by the U.S. National Restaurant Association. The program is accredited by ANSI and the Conference for Food Protection. Sanitation certification is required by most restaurants as a basic credential for their management staff.
I have a separate kitchen in home that I run my business out of as well, this space is strictly used for my business only and is an entirely separate part of the house.
